    compression test

    Yes you need to do test with throttle wide open (engine of course off). My '17 with 375 hours tested at 145psi so I'd say try again with throttle WFO. If still that low, then you have issues.
  2. Hey Feets, well the top photo (stock part) is showing backwards above so I probably should have found a better example I called a vendor today who has a '14 and '21 in his shop so he is going to try to look and see if the newer style guard will bolt up to the old style mount. I'll post a solution assuming I find one. Apparently KTM has no interest in supplying "legacy" parts so it will be interesting to see how availability of older parts goes next few years.
  3. I have a 2017 txt 250 and been searching for a rear disc guard but they seem to be on back order everywhere. It does NOT look like the new style disc guard will bolt up. Anyone know the bare minimum components I would need to buy to make it fit? The old part # is BT57050R3009 The new part # is BT57050GG-CPR-1
  4. I'm pretty sure it goes between the clutch cover and the kickstart shaft. So you install the clutch cover, then this tapered washer then the kickstart itself. Larger end butts up against kickstart
  5. My guess is excess carbon buildup in the mid pipe of the exhaust. Were you riding for extended period at higher RPM like on a fire road? That will definitely heat up the goo in the mid box.
  6. Thanks Carl and Feetup! Will look at getting correct length bolts (luckily my pegs aren't "drooping" yet) and also searched for pre formed peg mounts (see below). I try to take care of all my bikes (hence 400 hours on original engine) but do hope to get a new bike in next few years. Feetup...have you seen any peg mounts for sale which are specifically made for modern TXT? I found these on RYP which are meant to allow vintage trials bikes use modern pegs. The GasGas frame is rounded but I'm sure a fabricator could grind this product down to make it fit. Would like to avoid messing with welding the frame if I can.
  7. Hello all, what are your opinions on how I should fix this issue? 2017 GG with around 400 hours and stock skid plate didn't protect base of footpeg mount so material was scraped off. Now I'm getting concerned as the hole for the footpeg bolt is dangerously close to the "edge" of the mount on both pegs. Another rider in our club said he could weld some "material" to the base to build the mount back up. I think that is the best option right now since I don't think GasGas sells a replacement footpeg mount. Your thoughts?
  8. 99% sure that hole is stock so no need to worry as it was likely there before the damage occurred. Read through this thread for more info on that hole.
  9. Clogged pilot jet is likely cause, take carb bowl off thoroughly clean, etc. I would first check to see where your air mixture screw is at. How many turns out from fully seated?
  10. No problem Steve, that's what we are all here for...to help each other out. At least you've properly documented it with the dealer if something goes wrong later.
  11. Here is a video of my '17 going through gears. Definitely no grinding from 4th to 5th. A semi loud "clank" but that is it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1l7L3j3j3Iw0kz9tCxEX3zsaUT62tcWSb/view?usp=sharing
  12. Maybe try getting video or sound of the gear change? Next time I have my '17 out I'll try to record mine shifting from 4th to 5th. As others state, mine is "loud" noise but I don't think it is a grinding noise.
  13. Whatever adhesive you use, yes I would take the fitting out and clean everything. Then apply it and let it sit overnight before you add fuel.
  14. I had same issue with mine, dealer suggested and I have used TWICE now 3M windshield adhesive (black colored). Just get the area totally clean and free from gas/oil like the prior person said. https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Auto-Glass-Urethane-Windshield-Adhesive/?N=5002385+3293242009&rt=rud
  15. Thanks for the follow up and pics Zippy. I'm going to try using the GG outer seals next time I replace my bearings then, should help keep some moisture out.
